3am significant buoy readings and discussion
South shore
2ft @ 7s from 176° (S)
2ft @ 11s from 186° (S)
1.8ft @ 15s from 194° (SSW)
1.3ft @ 9s from 194° (SSW)

2.7ft @ 6s from 173° (S)
1.7ft @ 11s from 184° (S)
1.6ft @ 15s from 196° (SSW)
1.4ft @ 9s from 198° (SSW)

1.8ft @ 18s from 193° (SSW)

Still a bunch of swells of different period at the buoys, what we care the most is the remaining 15s energy. Notice also some longer period energy at the SW buoy. It's in our waters too, yesterday afternoon Lanai had a 0.7ft 22s reading. It's been a great week on the south shore (hopefully I can start enjoying it, as my jet lag seems to have finally faded) and today should be good too with building size throughout the day (and even bigger tomorrow) . Check the webcam before going.

North shore
1.9ft @ 9s from 4° (N)

4ft @ 8s from 78° (ENE)

Not sure about that small N energy at Waimea, also today it should be mostly about the small windswell on the north shore.

Wind map at noon.

North Pacific has mostly the windswell fetch. Notice the low that formed north of us and will be responsible for disrupting the trades flow in the next few days. Clean windless conditions in the morning and hot in the middle of the day.

South Pacific has fetches W and E of New Zealand.

Morning sky shows a rain monster that just developed over Kauai.
